Best mode of transportation: The Spaceship

On a daily basis, I hear my friends talk about what car they’d love to drive. A BMW this or that. I don’t know about you, but there’s another form of transportation I’d kill to take to work every day: a spaceship!

In lieu of fans everywhere that agree, here’s a look at some of the coolest, creepiest, and funniest spaceships to ever to grace TV and film.

Serenity (Firefly)

The coolest part about this ship is that, when it’s taking off, the lighted back end makes it look like (you guessed it) a firefly!

Though the exterior is also cool, it’s the gate room that makes the ships in any Stargate series unique!
